Hotels in Edale
The village of Edale lies in the heart of the Peak District – one of the UK's most spectacular landscapes and a mecca for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts. A small and charming village, Edale is a picturesque place to stay, in its gorgeous setting below the strange formations of the Kinder Scout. Part of its attraction lies in its location at the start of the famous Pennine Way – one of Britain's most popular long-distance trails. Due to its size, there are few Edale hotels, but book early and you can have uninterrupted access to a stunning corner of the country.
Edale itself is the name of both a small village and the surrounding valley. The village itself is built of attractive stone and comprises a handful of buildings. However, there are also a number of hamlets along the valley as well as several campsites and a youth hostel.
The main activities for visitors are walking, hiking, cycling, climbing and mountain biking. Walkers can try a circular route from Edale village, or any number of longer walks around the Edale and Hope valleys. As Edale is surrounded by a range of gritstone edges, there are many climbing opportunities, especially Stanage which has over 400 routes. There's also limestone climbing at the White Peak. Mountain bikers will enjoy a trip to Lord's Seat, while hang gliders and paragliders can take off from Mam Tor. Horse riding is also available at Lady Booth Farm in Nether Booth.
Visitors may also like to explore Bagshaw Cavern, a natural cave system in Bradwell that's open to the public on summer weekends. History enthusiasts may enjoy a trip to see the ruins of Peveril Castle – a Norman and Medieval castle founded in 1080.
